Berlin by design
Unfortunately I spent most of my days at the Web2Expo in Berlin sorting out work issues and wasn't really able to take in many of the sessions. That's life. However when I did have a few moments to spare I decided to go and listen to topics I wouldn't normally have done.
And it proved to be a good decision. To be honest sometimes I get rather sick of listening to the Web 2.0 buzzword bingo. Anyway - apart from Tom's talk I went and listened to Matt Webb talk about design and in particular a new radio they are prototyping for the BBC and I heard Mark Boulton's talk on "Better Typography". I also enjoyed the Microsoft keynote on Photosynth. It's amazing when you think about how we are now able to recreate real-world scenarios from the enormous number of photos available on the Web.
I think that's a plan for the future - and I'm sure I'm the last one to discover it - go to a conference but attend talks on subjects you know nothing about. I was actually able to shut up my laptop and just listen in awe for a change.
